Hair down on wash day, tie it up for 3 days then repeat – that’s not what we mean by styling based on its condition. Start with freshly washed hair, styled how you normally would – airdry, blowdry, you get the gist. On the second day (the day your hair looks the best in my opinion), go for something a little messier. On day 3, use your straighteners to smooth it out into something sleek, the oil will work to your advantage. Day 4, top knot. Obviously.
How to wash your hair less without anyone noticing (from someone who only does it once a week)
There are loads of reasons why you should wash your hair less frequently. It keeps your colour fresh for longer, your hair will be all-round healthier – but the one that we really, really care about, washing your hair is a chore. Do you know what I want to do with my evening? Drink wine and watch Netflix. Do you know what I don’t want to do? Wash my hair. You do the maths. Here’s some tried and tested ways of squeezing a couple of extra days out of your hair. You are welcome.
